Lesson Details

Broadway Singing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I welcome all levels of students. I teach a a technique used by most of the current recording artists ( Justin Timberlake, Amercian Idol) which is designed simply to make singing much easier for students of all levels by keeping the larynx in one position. It's called Speech Level Singing.

With years of professional experience under my belt both as a head line recording artist and session singer for acts and TV Ads (james Blunt, Pet Shop Boys, Jamaroqui, Coca- Cola) I will help you not only with your vocal training but with your performance skills and techniques, studio recording technique, intonation, expression. I have a Oscar nomination for Best Song Category in 2015 and I have worked as a songwriter helping develop artists with whom I have worked.

Whether you are auditioning for Productions, learning for yourself, or gifting for a loved one , or whether your a seasoned pro that needs a tune or a beginner, I'm here to lend your my support, guidance and advice as your coach. We will set goals if you want and work towards them.

Most of all I will ensure we have fun during the process and you will feel empowered.
